Garage serves as the second entrance in your house and being second entrance it demands that you should make it very secure. Burglars see garages as soft targets because people do not pay much attention towards these doors. Installing a simple alarm and camera will not do the trick these days. You need to install some secure and fool proof security system. With modern garage doors, there are more advanced security systems available but all of them are very expensive. First of all you should make sure that your door material is also strong and reliable. There are lots of techniques which can help you to increase the security of your garage door and you have to take care of these things during garage door installation.
First of all while doing garage door installation, you should try to make it more and more compact because it will lower the cost as well as give you a chance to install a more expensive security system. There are two major types of garage doors which are sectional and overhead. Both of these types are elegant looking and secure but sectional types of garage doors are more secure than overhead because small sections give more strength to material and they are hard to break. Secondly, these days manual doors are not preferred at all and rightly so because these doors are low in reliability and security. They come with fewer opening systems and they also cannot be modified according to the exterior. On the other hand automated garage doors are in fashion and they are more secure, save and convenient.
There are security systems like thumb scanning, voice recognition and remote control but you should prefer a method which gives 100 percent access of garage door to you. There is a new security system being used these days and that is to install steel bars in the door. These bars are solid in their making and these are installed inside the garage door to give more strength to the door. It becomes almost impossible to break into such bars. There is no restriction of material and you can install these bars with any kind of material like wood, fiberglass or any other. These are only installed with automated system and they close in the ground of your garage. They take no extra space in your garage entrance and provide more security to your car and to your family.
If you install some security system like thumb scanning then, there is always risk involved in these systems because their panels are installed outside the garage and anyone from outside can access them. To avoid this, you should look for remote control garage doors because their panels are installed inside the garage and they feel more secure. There are some advanced systems like voice recognition and these are also installed inside the garage. There are voice recognition systems that open and close only with the voice of your particular car engine’s voice. These systems are very attractive and also very secure and make your garage door installation very fool proof.
